Guide Tyson Wallerstein is equipped head to toes to take on the summer with various items boasting comfort and/or sun protection.

It's hot and muggy, and you can't wait for summer to be over. But fall doesn't officially arrive for another six weeks, and even then, things probably won't start cooling down around here until late October.

But don't let the sun keep you off the water. Just dress for the season and you will be ready for your next flats fishing trip or sea kayaking adventure.

Here is some of the latest gear to help you make it through these final dog days of summer.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Less proved to be more for RHP Jake Odorizzi during his last start when he pitched exclusively out of the stretch. The result was seven one-hit innings in the Rays' 3-2 win Monday at Oakland.
